Anyone ever had a car stolen?
My new truck was stolen last night. Curious how other people have turned out in the situation.

Were the keys in it or did they have some other way to get in it and start it?

Pray it's not found and you can just get a new one.

File a police report. Can’t you track it? I thought all the newer cars were tricked out with electronics that you can track via GPS.

Depends on the car.

It's probably in a container by now.

re: Anyone ever had a car stolen?
When I was a kid our Suburban was stolen from a hotel parking lot in Atlanta. The cops found it a few days later in a neighborhood the insurance adjusters refused to go to. My dad picked it up from a tow yard and on the way home he threw a Raffi cassette out the window in disgust because he thought it was a rap album left by one of the thieves.

Locked car and they had no keys.

Still praying it was towed but police department has no record of it. It was parked on city property (side of the road with other cars) so I thought it was just towed at first. Called some private companies around the area and none of them have it.

Twice, once in Dallas. The car was recovered they did some damage to the interior, had it all repaired.
Same car was stolen in New Orleans after I moved back.
Insurance paid me for it and a few weeks later I was contacted that the car was found. It was trashed and I told the police I didn't own it anymore to contact the insurance company

Yes, then it was totalled in a police chase.

Bought another one and installed a gps and a custom fuel line kill switch that shuts fuel off. Its hidden, and if it somehow is miraculously started and taken, unless flipped over it will "run out of gas".

re: Anyone ever had a car stolen?
I had a giant, uniquely painted OTR glass rack truck stolen. The bastards drilled through cinderblock walls to get it. It turned up three months later at a truck stop at the Florida/Georgia line.

It's still a mystery why they took it and then left it there. It took work to get the truck, and it ain't exactly joy-riding material.

How they got in:

re: Anyone ever had a car stolen?
Obviously I filed a report....

But I recently moved to Dallas and this was my welcoming gift I guess. Also OnStar says they cant track it because I haven’t pressed the little blue OnStar button in the last 30 days. So, they cannot link to it or some crap.

I know a guy that had both vehicles stolen in one night. He and his wife woke up to go to work and the driveway was empty.

yeah I swear almost every car stolen story is from Mardi Gras. They probably were just too drunk to find their car so they said it was stolen though

re: Anyone ever had a car stolen?
all new vehicles come with onstar

it lets them turn the camera and microphone on to see and hear who is in your truck and the exact gps location to tell the cops where to go get it

unless they are really stupid, its already stripped bare to an empty shell and you will get it back as just a bare frame

PS - this is why i dont buy new, i dont want anyone to listen in and see me without my permission or track my location and movements. any future purchases i make will have the onstar BS gutted and completely removed from it before i drive it

Yes. A few weeks later, it turned up with scratches from being driven through the desert a lot. Insurance totaled it due to scratches, but left title clear. I took it to a detailer and paid $250 to have it buffed and detailed inside. Came out perfect.

So, I got a $4750 and my car cleaned.

Get the club though.

Can also be used for road rage purposes. Or for the prostitute to get herself going while you find a place to park.

Buddy of mine has his Jeep stolen back in High School. He had moved to south Alabama from out of state. Hadn’t been here a few months and it was hit wired and stolen. Files the police report and they found it about a week later. The inside was trashed but it was still running. Had it all repaired through insurance.
